AUGUST 13–18, 2023
William Baker and Caroline Douglas
Slow Clay for Fast Times
This workshop will use clay work as part of an attentive exploration of what we might mean by mindfulness or mindful awareness. Students will explore creative writing, journaling, meditation, and movement, and how these techniques can ignite our creativity and enliven our mood. We’ll also explore elements of the flow state as an additional way of understanding our creative practices and our relationships to them. Daily clay demonstrations will include various handbuilding and wheelthrowing techniques. Stoneware clay; bisque-fire only. All levels. Lower clay studio.
